Not a teaching related post, but definitely a good read for those who like those nice little stories that make you realize there are plenty of good people out there.
Here is my little story....
Have you ever had one of those mornings that nothing seems to go right? This past Friday, I had one of those days. I couldn't get myself out the door. On top of the minor setbacks, I left my breakfast on the kitchen table. I stopped by this locally owned breakfast restaurant, Martins. (They have the BEST biscuits in the world!) As I pulled up to the window, I handed the lady my card. She handed it back and told me the gentleman in front of me had paid for my breakfast and simply said Merry Christmas! I couldn't believe it! I was so moved by what this man did for me.
Such a simple little act. Completely changed my day on small little act. So small, yet I couldn't thank him, and he will never know how his act changed my day. Of course I plan on paying it forward with an act of my own, but I was so moved by his actions that I wanted to share with everyone I could.
Whoever you were... Thank you!
To those of you reading, I challenge you to pay it forward. One small act. Nothing big.
